During the IV Colombian Ornithology Conference, SELVA carried out an introductory course to bird banding. We had 14 participants of whom the majority were biology students from various Colombian universities including the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Universidad Javeriana, Universidad de Caldas, Universidad de Córdoba, Universidad del Valle and Universidad de Los Andes.

The course participants had the oportunity to learn the theoretical and practical basics of bird banding and its application in ornithological research. We thank the Asociación Colombiana de Ornitología, Universidad Javeriana de Cali and Universidad del Valle, who contributed to the success of this course.
